Karzai threatens to send troops into Pakistan
Afghan President Hamid Karzai threatened on Sunday to send troops into neighbouring Pakistan to kill Taliban fighters if they continued cross-border attacks into Afghanistan.

The self-proclaimed Pakistani Taliban leader Baitullah Mehsud and other Taliban officials in recent weeks have vowed to send fighters into Afghanistan for the war against Afghan and foreign occupation forces.

"When they cross the territory from Pakistan to come and kill Afghans and kill coalition troops, it exactly gives us the right to go back and do the same."

"Therefore, Baitullah Mehsud should know that we will go after him now and hit him in his house."

Neither government officials nor a spokesman for the Taliban in Pakistan could immediately be reached for comment.
